(Mill Creek Canon)
- Typically Maul Oak has a white or whitish trunk, although often mossy, quite smooth as to the general surface but fissured superficially in long narrow ribbons But one may find on other trees and even on the same trees on the other side of the trunk say, deeply fissured bark broken also transversely. I think as fine a lot of trees as are to be found are or were in Mill Creek Canon, tall clear clean trunks, straight and unbranched for 30 to 60 ft, which always characterize the most finely developed specimens on canon sides or in canons. There are some fine Bay Laurel (100 ft. h.), Douglas Spruce, Oregon Maple, Garry Oak, Black Oak, Torreya, Ash of Oregon.
